Career Services offers a large variety of virtual services and resources from career preparation activities to a variety of opportunities for talented Lions and employers to connect. Please see below for all the ways you can engage with our office virtually:
Multiple virtual resources are available to help you explore possible career options and paths, combined with resources to help you learn more about your particular career interests and personality traits. Several of our favorite virtual resources to assist you in this endeavor can be found at our Career Exploration and Career Assessment pages (including Type Focus and What Can I do With This Major).
Don’t underestimate the value of conducting virtual job searches as part of the career exploration and discovery process. Virtual job searches are available to you through Handshake, as well as national-based job search engines such as Indeed and Career Builder. LinkedIn is also a great virtual tool to explore various career options and paths.
Note that Handshake and LinkedIn utilize your account profiles to develop the content provided to you. As a result, taking great care in completing your profiles is important to your access to the most relevant and valuable career-related information.
Your resume is the first impression you will make on an employer. Let Career Services help you successfully market your qualifications to employers by implementing the advice provided on our “Build A Resume” page so you can develop a resume that is visually appealing, professionally written, and error-free.
Additionally, our Big Interview platform has its own “resume curriculum” that includes helpful videos to create a document that effectively showcases your experience and skills to employers.
Once your resume has been written with our “Build A Resume” information and advice in mind, your next step is to add your resume to your Handshake account in order to apply to part-time, internship, and/or full-time employment opportunities. Note that your resume will receive a review by a Career Services staff member upon your uploading it to Handshake.
